What A Day!!

I had the best birthday yesterday!!  Thank you so much to everyone who sent facebook messages, texted, and sent cards!!  I definitely felt the love : )  
I wanted to document my day hour by hour with pictures.  

Sit back and hang on for a day in the life post!

My first hour was spent editing photos from my photo shoot last week..

Then Tenley arrived and it was play time!

Then my sister called and we got to talk for like an hour!!  We never do that, so when we do it's always great!

And for the very best part of my day...meeting up with my Mom and other sister to get Maddie!!!
She has spent the last few days with Grammie and PaPa and we have missed her.  Even Gracie was wondering where Maddie went.  I got the biggest, best hugs when she saw me!!

We met up at the Children's Hospital for my nephew Evan.  He had a doctor's appointment with one of the specialists there.
He was diagnosed with Minimal Change disease back in 2007.  My day just kept getting better, because what looked like a grim diagnosis back then, is now a thing of the past!!  The doctor said unless he shows any signs or symptoms, she won't need to see him again! : )  Yay!

Next up, was my birthday lunch.  I chose Abuelo's.

Maddie attacked her plate without any help (well, Mom did have to cut the burrito into a few pieces) and she sat in her own chair the entire meal!  She's growing up.

Next on the list...cupcakes!!!
We went to the new place Pinkitzel.  

Maddie enjoyed horsing around...while literally pretending to be a horse!

The place is decorated so cool!

and who doesn't love a candy store?!!

On the way back my sweet Mom wanted to help me document the day.  She grabbed my camera for a quick shot.  
uh oh...
Totally  nailed it!!  Way to go Mom : ) 

On the way home Maddie and Tenley both fell asleep.  
I went out and checked the mail and found these lovelies!!

Kyle wanted to take me out for dinner, but since I was still stuffed from Abuelo's I really didn't want a big meal.  I also really didn't want to clean the kitchen!!

So off to Chick-Fil-A we went!!

After  that we headed out for a walk.  
Maddie smelled the lilacs in bloom...

and investigated some other pretty flowers.  

Then, she and her Daddy had fun with their shadows...

and it was time for a shoulder ride to finish out the long trek back home.

After we got home it was time to enjoy our cupcakes!
Maddie sang "Happy Birthday" to me.  Her first time to ever sing!!  We have it on video, I'll try and post it some time : )  

And that concluded my fabulous 34th Birthday!!!  

Thank you friends for helping make it so special!! : )
